that stayed in business well into the 1970s. In 1984, Belgian artist Albert Szukalski created his sculpture of The Last Supper which became part of the Goldwell Open Air Museum at the southern entrance of the ghost city.
But, perhaps most importantly, the city became a huge building supply. Much of the material used to build Rhyolite was salvaged for use in buildings in other communities. In some cases entire structures were moved to other communities. The union hall was moved to Beatty, NV, where it became the Town Hall. Two room cabins were moved and reassembled as multi-room homes. Many of the buildings in Rhyolite provided material for the Beatty Elementary School. In many ways and in many of the surrounding communities, Rhyolite continues to exist and serve the needs of of the area.
